Cunard Sets Sail With Rocky Mountaineer

This summer, Cunard will be offering passengers aboard the Queen Elizabeth’s Alaska sailing the opportunity to experience the Rocky Mountaineer train through the spectacular Canadian Rockies.

Depending on their sailing date, guests will either be able to extend their Alaska voyage with a three-night post-cruise Rocky Mountaineer package or a four-night tour before embarking on Queen Elizabeth in Vancouver.

Packages go on sale today (Jan. 24).

While the three-night tour takes guests on an eastbound journey from Vancouver to Calgary, the four-night tour goes the opposite direction and gives guests an additional day of sightseeing in Banff, where the highlight is a spectacular trip on the Banff Gondola.

Sture Myrmell, President, Carnival UK, said: “We are thrilled to be able to provide guests an opportunity to combine a luxury cruise on board Queen Elizabeth that takes in the finest views of Alaska by sea, with a journey on the Rocky Mountaineer taking in the stunning scenery of the Canadian Rockies by train. With the exceptional service and fine dining, Rocky Mountaineer is a wonderful addition to a Cunard voyage and we know our guests will be delighted to have an opportunity to enjoy the spectacular surroundings in style.”
